Hey friends, Happy Tuesday hope you are well. Today I want to tell you all about another great subscription we get in the Vick house, this one is not for us but our dogs. so let me start by asking have you heard of bark box yet?!
No?! let me tell you all about our experience through the first year of our bark box subscription. Everything about these boxes just yells out open me i’m full of fun! When we started our subscription last April we only had Teddy so he has had the box to himself until January when we got Milo.
One thing I did before we signed up was research, research and more research! I watched a lot of review videos and read what actual people had to say on Facebook in the comments where they seem to be the most critical of everything.
One thing i really liked about Barkbox was that all their products are made in the US or Canada and all of the treats we have gotten so far have been made is the US which is so awesome! we get all kinds of treats from all kinds of cool companies that partner with Barkbox to match the treats with the toy theme.
We joined when they had a coupon for a free bonus toy and I am so glad we did, especially now that we have Milo because it gives them an extra toy to
fight over play with together. These toys have been through the ringer we are up to 6 trashed toys out of around 36, what i also love is when our boys destroy a toy we can text customer service and they send them a new tougher toy to replace it. They also have a super chewer box if your dog is a little more rough on toys but I was told they do not offer the extra free toy with that box as of yet.
It is so important to me that any company has great people working in their customer service, A company willing to right a wrong is always worth my money. I really love that I can text customer service if I have a problem, they are super friendly and in just a few short days we have a replacement toy or treat for our boys. The ability to text this helps me get questions answered or products replaced during my busy work week without missing a beat.
Here is a look at this months box, the theme is BarkBeards Treasure: A Pirates Tail
Each month your box comes just like this with a cute themed paper to cover all the goodies. We have seen youtubers give the box directly to the dogs to open but we don’t do that. I like the chance to take the tags off and make each of our dogs sit for a toy and the third toy goes in the toy bucket for later play.
Each box comes with cards telling about the toys and treats that came in your box and other buy-able toys and treats for that theme you can buy from Barkbox’s online store.
some toys come with bonus toys inside for when your pup gets to rough and kaboom toy destruction! our dogs actually love the little spike balls from inside broken toys and they take turns trying to hide them from each other.
This box came with a cute bandanna, this was a first and I hope one of our boys will actually wear it. it is very soft and large enough it would fit either dog.
You get 2 bags of treats and one chew unfortunately this is not pictured, they ate it while i was taking pictures. This is the same for every package everyone gets the same treats and sometimes they give you a chance to add something fun like a dog safe cake!
Well that concludes my review of our bark box, our pups really look forward to these coming in the mail each month and we think your pups would too!
If you want to try a BarkBox and see for yoursef how great this company is you can get one here.
Also you can start with just one month if you are not so sure or go for six months or a full year like we did!
Thanks for reading
